It was a damn good thing she did, because she was able to catch and report 56-year-old Michael Kellar for sending shocking and disgusting messages about sexually abusing children.
After reading the texts from behind him, the woman took photos of them with her own phone and reported Kellar to the flight crew. They alerted San Jose police, who were waiting for him when the plane landed.
